68 pumpkin jewelry

pumpkin jewelryPumpkin jewelry… Pumpkin recycling… From my last pp (pumpkin post) I still had some pumpkin seeds left over. No more soup, already gone… I´m sorry…:-)

You need:
  1. pumpkin seeds (I used 68:-)
  2. nylon thread
  3. leather strap
  4. magnetic jewelry catch
  5. acrylic color

pumpkin jewelry Let´s start…

  • Kill a pumpkin 😉
  • Dry cleaned pumpkin seeds on a baking sheet at 212°f, for about 20 minutes – keep watching…
  • Don´t bake them to long, otherwise they start popping like popcorn. Funny, but a big mess to clean… Learning by doing, I know what I´m talking about:-)
  • Thread pumpkin seeds, with a sewing needle on a nylon thread and color them with your favorite color and let dry.
  • Make 3 pumpkin seed rows, with as much seeds as you want, the more seeds you add to your necklace, the nicer it´s gonna look like.Knot each pumpkin seed row onto the open ends of the leather strap.

Finally you created a really fancy, in my case golden shining necklace, using only a few things. For my necklace I adapted a magnetic jewelry catch, by cutting trough the other side and placing it on each end. The jewelry catch makes the necklace more adjustable.
